3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
Go to this site http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger and download Windows Live Messenger.

Adjust Your Audio and Video Settings:
In order to adjust your audio and video settings, please follow the steps given below:
1. Click the Audio and Video Settings button directly below the My Buddy or My Camera window.

Problem with iphone the camera shows ablack screen


Clean any debris from lens with soft cloth.
Try and download a free "camera" app from app store.
If app doesnt display camera correctly, restore your iPhone, if still not working your hardware may be damaged.
